    Hi, I'm sorry if this post does not fit in this catagory but I couldn't find the catagory that this post would best fits under.

    I play this game called MapleStory, I know its a little kiddish but i play becuase it fun.
    but recently obout every minute this error pops up...


    wgav.eve - Allication error

    The instruction at "0x0043433" referenced memory at "0x004014d4". The memory could not be "wrirtten"

    Click on OK to terminate the problem
    Click on CANCEL to debug the problem

    OK CANCEL


    So thats what the error looks like. Can someone please help me and tell me what is wrong with my computer or the game.

    Thank-You

    to stop the debug bit

    tools ---> internet options ---> advanced

    put a check / tick into the two 'disable script de-bug boxes'

    IIRC you have to 'own' th eS/W before you are able to de-bug it .......

    as for the rest
    you are not alone
    read this for some ideas

    and don't forget to post back with updates AND your fix too

    By wgav.eve I assume you meant wgav.exe??

    If so then a quick google search shows us that this is a virus...

    Undies Speaking through Hole in head

    Ahhhh Duck...

    Could WGAV.exe also be WINDOWS Genuine Advantage Validation tool.. if your getting errors it may be a handy idea to followup on the problems with the WGA tool..
    Sorry Duck, I too did extra checking and actually had hoped that you hadnt read this.. so I could fix my error..(read ****up)

    Very good thinking there Undies ... but after double checking it appears that the process that belongs to windows genuine advantage validation tool is: wgatray.exe

    So wgav.exe is malicious. Do a google search and you won't find one legite site about it .

    All I could find on this was:

    It seems it spreads through AIM as an invitation to go to a buddies MySpace webpage. It will install itself as a Windows service and mimic the new Windows update for Windows Genuine Advantage. It actually installs the service as Windows Genuine Advantage Checker in services.msc, but doesn't allow you to stop the service. It runs as wgav.exe in the task manager as with System rights. It is a variation of a backdoor trojan. Just like the actual new service (which doesn't get listed) it will send out its data everytime you reboot or logon, plus once a day.

    In order to get rid of this you must boot intoSafe Mode and disable the service. You can then delete the actual wgav.exe found in the system32 folder and prefetch folder.

    Source

    Apparently it's brought in through AIM and myspace.com...

    Here is additional info provided by soemone else who submitted a HJT log over at Tomcoyote, it has instructions on how to identify and remove wgav.exe....
